Hi Alex,

You can do it with ScriptRunner with a Script Listener. When the assignee is modified you would use the transition API to perform the transition.




I'd like to a do this also but i have have no idea what a Script listener or a transition API is. How do i do script listener?

Can anyone help me?


Hi Tom,

This is related to a 3rd-party add-on called Scriptrunner.

For more details have a look here:

Adaptavist has a lot of documentation about the product on their site, and also has a training course, if you're interested.
